Up for auction, a pristine 1952 GETZEN - ''90 DELUXE'' - MEDIUM LARGE BORE PROFESSIONAL Bb TRUMPET WITH A CUSTOM RAW SATIN/POLISHED FINISH IN NEAR MINT PLUS CONDITION
I have been playing horns for 52 years...collecting and restoring them for 41. Over those years I put together a nationally recognized trumpet/ cornet collection that topped out at 145 horns. During the past three years I have substantially thinned out the herd and continue to do so. All my horns are gig ready...cleaned, valves adjusted & aligned with new corks & felts when necessary.
Here's a spectacular example of an early issue model 90 Deluxe. It is identical in every way to a Super Deluxe, but has a much heavier walled bell tube with a standard rolled wire filled rim, and no copper trim...strictly yellow brass and nickel silver. The heavier bell is much less prone to damage and produces a more centered, focused, warmer and mellower tone than the SD. It has a bright edge with a somewhat trashy sophistication when pushed, a sweet upper register and excellent projection. These early series 90 models eventually became the Eterna 900 series in the mid '60s. This 90 Deluxe would make a fabulous lead/solo/jazz horn and can easily peel the paint from any back wall you may desire to strip.&n
